Luxembourg September 2012: BMW in pole position!
* See the Top 20 best-selling brands by clicking on the title! *
Still no models info available for Luxembourg (if you have any please get in touch!) but the brands ranking in September is eventful enough to warrant an update here. The new car market in Luxembourg resists well in September at just -4% year-on-year to 3,340 registrations, bringing the year-to-date total to 39,090 units, down 1% on 2011. While Volkswagen keeps the lead by far over 9 months with 5,032 sales and 13.2% share, in September BMW is the most popular brand in Luxembourg thanks to an astounding 555 units and 16.6% share!
This could be explained by a combination of weak Golf sales for the month (in anticipation of the 7th gen on sale later this year) and both the BMW 1 and 3 Series now reaching cruising sales levels. Thanks to this spectacular performance in September, BMW passes Audi to now rank #2 year-to-date at 3,872 units and 9.9% vs. 3,647 and 9.3% for Audi. Mercedes also delivers a very solid month: up to #3 in September with 280 sales and 8.4%. Year-to-date, Renault ranks #4 followed by Peugeot, Mercedes and Citroen.
